Scanning stats, CISO award

Scanning snapshot. The Postal Service’s national scanning rating was 97.86 percent during the week ending April 27, up from one week earlier.

Dakotas (99.26 percent) topped the districts, while Western (98.25 percent) led the areas.

To see the latest results, go to the Enterprise Analytics site and select “Analytics Tools,” followed by “DES 2 — Scan Performance.”

Three cheers. The USPS Corporate Information Security Office (CISO) received three awards at the recent Federal Information Systems Security Educators’ Association conference in Gaithersburg, MD.

CISO’s 5 Ways to Stay CyberSafe video and site won the best awareness video and best awareness website awards, respectively.

A CyberSafe at USPS charging kit — a promotional item containing a car charger, a portable charging stick, and a USB cord for charging electronics on-the-go — received a peers’ choice award in the motivational item category.

The conference is organized each year by the association, also known as FISSEA, an organization that helps federal agencies strengthen cybersecurity training and awareness.

The CyberSafe at USPS Blue or LiteBlue pages have additional information and tips for postal employees.
